!! OMG, listen to this: Hercules & Love Affair – ‘Do You Feel The Same?’ Video !!

Belgian singer Gustaph provides the lead vocal on Hercules & Love Affair‘s latest ‘Do You Feel The Same?’. Hercules’ Andy Butler said he wanted:

“nasty basslines, stormy, bleary-eyed sounds, fiery, rough, tough and ragged old school house productions that sounded almost techno. I didn’t want polite, I wanted aggressive.”

Check out the video below! The new album ‘The Feast Of The Broken Heart’ is out May 26th!

!! OMG, a Q&A with Andrew Butler of Hercules and Love Affair !!


The world is a much more exciting place now that Hercules and Love Affair is back on the scene. After releasing an acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2008, our favorite dance act is on tour this summer to get club audiences hyped for their sophomore effort Blue Songs, due out in January 2011.

Best known for the dance classic “Blind” (Pitchfork’s #1 song of 2008), Hercules and Love Affair is the brainchild of songwriter/producer Andy Butler. While the band’s first album referenced a classic disco sound and featured the vocal stylings of DJ-turned-singer Kim Ann Foxman, beloved torch crooner Antony Hegarty and high-energy R&B vocalist Nomi Ruiz, this time around Butler has a new line-up of singers and is looking to dance music’s future, rather than it’s past, for inspiration. Blue Songs, he says, will feature the modern pop-house bangers we’ve come to expect from the band, but also softer, stranger compositions.

For the summer tour, he’s pared back the set-up to focus on a glammed-up club experience that feature Foxman alongside two new vocal personalities: Shaun Wright and Aerea Negrot.

Last week we rang up Butler at his home base in Denver to chat about the tour, the new album, his new label MR.INTL Records, remixing Madonna and Gaga and his fabulous new hair. Read the Q&A after the jump and check back tomorrow to see photos from Hercules and Love Affair’s Toronto show.

!! OMG, a Q&A with Kim Ann Foxman !!


In the lavishly-produced world of disco pop band Hercules and Love Affair, Kim Ann Foxman is the faggy female voice behind the song “Athene.” Off stage, she’s a jewelry designer, a DJ and all-round enjoyable interview subject.

Originally from Hawaii, Kim Ann moved to San Francisco in the mid-nineties and threw herself into the city’s rave scene. A few years later she moved to New York where she started a dirty dance party called Mad Clams at The Hole with her friend Andy Bulter, now the musical force behind Hercules and Love Affair.

These days, she divides her time between New York, her girlfriend’s house in Barcelona, and the Hercules recording studio in San Francisco. In advance of her DJ gigs in Chicago and Toronto this week, we rang up Kim Ann to reminisce over her days as a New York party promoter, amateur filmmaker and exercise video aficionado.
